Hey guys
I really need your help
Couple of days ago my hp envy notbook PC got in automatic disk repair loop which I couldn't by pass or get on with it; I use linux mint rosa for backing up my files and format my partitions and when I tried to reinstall windows with DVD or USB bootable devices while linux been cleaned from my PC it say:
bootable devices not found
No operating system found in this computer please install

And I couldn't figure out what's the problem is
I thought it was hard drive but it works fine when I use live linux OS
And if it was BIOS problem It shouldn't have boot to linux os. Please help!!!

What partitions did you format? Can you get into the diagnostics F2 as you power on and run a hard drive test?

Here's the help. That is a bad hard drive and needs replacement. You seem to know what you are doing so I will not bore you with details but more help available for the asking.

Are you running Linux Mint from a live disk or did you actually install it on the hard drive? If you did you may have altered the master boot record so it is hard to reinstall Windows or it may be that Linux handles booting from the hard drive differently than Windows and you can get Linux to boot from it and not Windows. That is why I use Linux as a tool to recover data from hard drives that will not boot Windows any more. Linux is much more forgiving of hardware errors.  In any event, the drive is bad and would start to gove you problems even in Linux at some point.

You figure that out and you would not have to work another day in your life. No despite what you might read from some crackpots, you cannot "fix" a bad hard drive. The best you can do is maybe mask the bad places or hide the performance issues. Once a hard drive tests bad it is not worth having any more and certainly not trustworth to run an operating system from.
